Course Description

The Gildan Esprit de She Atlanta 5K/10K Run is a unique opportunity to experience Piedmont Park, Atlanta’s “Common Ground” since 1904.

The event starts and finishes at the Meadow, near the south end of the park. The course takes participants along a nice, flat course inside Piedmont Park on paved, vehicle-free paths with beautiful views of Lake Clara Meer and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This is a very accessible course for first-timers.
